Match Preview

McAnuff back for Royals Reading will welcome Jobi McAnuff back into the side for the visit of top-of-the-league Southampton. The winger missed his side's 2-2 draw with Derby with an ankle injury but will feature at some stage in the evening kick-off. Manager Brian McDermott will be relieved to see another winger, Jimmy Kebe, come through 70 minutes against the Rams unscathed following a knee injury. But he may remain without Jay Tabb, who is still recovering from concussion suffered in the 1-0 win over Burnley. Aside from Tabb, McDermott has a fully-fit squad to choose from as his side look to extend their six-match unbeaten run and he is hoping in-form striker Adam Le Fondre can add to his goal tally. After Le Fondre's brace against Derby, McDermott told BBC Radio Berkshire: "Adam lives to score goals. He looks after himself and he's got himself really fit and has trained hard." Leaders Southampton will check on Adam Lallana ahead of the trip. Lallana has missed Saints' last two matches with a foot injury but could be added to the squad when they travel to the Madejski Stadium. Fellow midfielder Jack Cork dropped to the bench for Tuesday's 1-0 win over West Ham and may return to the starting line-up. Boss Nigel Adkins has no new injury concerns and has welcomed striker Lee Barnard back into full training for the first time this season following an ankle injury, although he is unlikely to be involved just yet. Radhi Jaidi remains on the sidelines after undergoing a knee operation and fellow defender Dan Seaborne is still recovering from the head injuries he suffered in an assault.

Match Report

De Ridder earns Saints unlikely point Substitute Steve de Ridder earned 10-man Southampton an unlikely 1-1 draw at Reading. The Belgian winger finished sublimely after latching on to a Guly do Prado's through ball to earn the npower Championship leaders a point. De Ridder's goal saw Reading drop points from a winning position for the first time this season, although their unbeaten run now stretches to seven matches. Having been thwarted by goalkeeper Kelvin Davis throughout the first half, the Royals looked set to secure victory when Mikele Leigertwood blasted home in the 71st minute. Saints' predicament got worse when skipper Dean Hammond was sent off minutes later, before De Ridder wriggled free to extend Southampton's lead at the top of the table to three points. The match started at a good pace and the visitors came close within the opening minutes, Richard Chaplow playing a neat one-two with David Connolly only to see his effort snuffed out at the near post. Saints were possibly fortunate not to see Jose Fonte sent off in the 13th minute when, aware a bouncing ball would leave Simon Church through on goal, he handled on the edge of the box. The Portuguese defender only received a yellow card but almost handed Reading a scoring opportunity shortly afterwards, rebounding a Jobi McAnuff shot across the face of goal. The Royals were looking dangerous and a 20-yard drive from Church saw Davis tip wide, before the Saints goalkeeper then flicked over Leigertwood's 30-yard-strike on the half-hour mark. Adam Le Fondre was next to have a pop at goal and was thwarted again shortly after as the home side searched for the opener. Aaron Martin replaced the yellow-carded Fonte at the break and the Saints backline was soon forced into action, with Danny Fox clearing off the line after Alex Pearce nodded goalwards. While Reading continued to attack, Saints looked more creative and only the quick reactions of Adam Federici stopped substitute Martin's header in the 54th minute. McAnuff saw a shot blocked at the other end moments later, before Saints returned to the attack and Chaplow forced Federici to save. The visitors came closer still when Rickie Lambert slipped through Fox, only for a last-ditch block from Kaspars Gorkss to prevent the left-back's goalbound strike. Despite Saints' second-half renaissance, they fell behind in the 71st minute as Leigertwood struck across goal after a McAnuff free-kick came back off the post. And any hopes of a Southampton comeback looked to be ended when captain Hammond was sent off five minutes later for a second bookable offence. However, substitute De Ridder latched on to a ball by Guly and jinked past Shaun Cummings to unleash a shot that rattled in off the bar in front of the 4,203 visiting fans. Mathieu Manset had calls for a penalty turned down as the clock wound down, with the sides sharing a draw in front of Reading's largest crowd of the season.
